I started this last Thursday and hated the color of the cat so I ripped it back out again and started over. I changed the colors to DMC 3032 and 3781 for the cat creating one that looked like Dagi. Dagi is a Mandarin cat which is a half long haired Siamese and his color is lilac tabby ticked. When he was a kitten you could see little bits of stripes on his fur which fadded as he grew. Okay, okay...I know the color is lilac but there is nothing purplish about my little man. He is a beige color actually. I am thinking about changing more of the cats to look like him as I go along.
Used for this sampler...
Zweigart Autumn Fields 28 count stitched 2/2
DMC 3032, 3781, 3045, 3012 and 3371
In the meantime, I also started pulling thread for the next cat sampler from the book called S. Claws. I have to start searching for frames now as I finish these. They are all small samplers so it might not be easy to find frames for them. I have to start looking around. Humm...an excuse to shop?
Note: I call Dagi my little man since he has such a big personality. He is really a little human with fur.
